Archaeology, Paleontology, Prehistory All books
How did our ancestors think? What did they feel? How did they live?
Yves Coppens reveals the latest archaeological findings and recreates prehistoric life with amazing precision
In forty years, the genealogical tree of human evolution has grown so extensively that it now spans six million years. But fossils, the tree of evolution and the story they tell openly challenge all prevailing ideas about evolution; and though they have been shaken, these ideas have barely begun to change. In this book, Pascal Picq examines concrete, existing proof of our origins and then goes on to offer a new view of the human position in the evolutionary process. Pascal Picq is a senior lecturer in paleo-anthropology and prehistory at the Collège de France.
